    I believe its more about time away from them. Im just not one to set around on the couch trying to think of things to do. She like to putter around the house all day or go shopping..... ALL day which isnt my thing. So we have come to an understanding. When there is something needing do..... i get-ur-done. Im lucky her sisters just moved within a mile of us. Girl time.... which i support. She really is supportive.... just not interested. But ..... happy wife happy life..... ensure you give your family equal time. Its nice being retired....... nothing but time.

    Detecting is very addictive! When I started metal detecting years ago I lived in Louisiana. I found an old area that was producing silver coins from the 1800's. When I got off work I would go to the old church site and hunt till dark. One evening I came home and as I walked into the bedroom I noticed the bed looked lumpy. I pulled back the cover and there was one of my metal detectors resting under the covers. I got the hint!

    I am fortunate enough to have a wife who loves MDing as much as I do! We hunt together with our kids! I work offshore so I have weeks at a time home and MDing provides us a fun outdoor activity! Listening to y'all makes me feel like a lucky man!

    Nothing better than detecting in a speedo. You get tan and get to show off. As a competitive swimmer, I say, go for it!

    Oh yeah , forgot to mention...any man wearing a "speedo" just looks down right nasty. Never did like the looks of it, even back in the day. Actually, all the women that I've talked too over the years think they are "gross". I have never met one woman who liked them, not one. And also I am a happy camper that my husband enjoys my metal detecting. He is looking forward to going with me some when I get to Wyoming. He keeps an eye out and tells me of places that he notices that might be of interest to me. He is a geologist, so being outside looking at all types of rocks and formations are his thing. He teaches me things and I teach him what I find out.

    Metal Detecting
    Just to clarify here, I don't own a speedo, nor do I ever plan on wearing one, my family just keeps teasing me about it saying that if I'm going to go geek I may as well go for the full package and wear a speedo while I MD. Loving this conversation tho, haha!

    I'm lucky in thay my wife fully supports my hobbies. She has some rules though. Like if I crash my motorcycle make sure it kills me because she's not spoon feeding me for the rest of my life. You know basic stuff like that!!!

    Seriously, it's a good relationship where freedom to try and do new things doesn't have a payback. WE both understand what the priories are and no hobby is in that category.

    So don't keep us in suspense! Did ya marry the detector or what?! .... Funny stuff, my wife has also made comments similar to your wife's actions, but she loves the bling I bring home from the beach. Dirt huntin' not so much, but she gets it.

It is a shame she cannot support the things that I enjoy doing. All of you guys with spouses that support your hobby don't know how lucky you are.
    Short story,I was out detecting @ oceanside from 7:00-7:00 (12 Hrs.).This man told me I should stop over @ Poncho Beach lot's of people go there,so I worked my way down the coastline of beaches.I call my husband to let him know I'll be home around 8:00,he tells me drive safely,I'll see ya when you get home:Packed my gear up,heading home until I see this sign Poncho Beach,then it dawn on me the guy told me to go there..What do you think? Of course I have to stopAs soon as I started detecting couple swings this woman comes over frantic,I lost my car keys in the sand,,please help me!!So I'm excited b/c this is my first time helping someone with my Mxt Pro.She showed me the area where it might be, a few swings & keys in my scoop!! The look on her face--Priceless,,her friend said it was magic,,I said "Thank God" it was he that brought me here,the odds on this:headband:She thanked me very much & I headed back home..All those hours, I found a lot of trash,about $12.00 worth of coins,lost car key--which to me was Priceless
    When I got home I told my husband the story,,he was a so proud of me & so happy I had a great time..My husband normally goes with me, while I'm detecting he sits in his van working on his computer or reads,I try not to stay out to long anywhere from 4-5 hours or he drops me off @ a beach & picks me up later,when he goes out on job walks,when its my days off. He knows I love the ocean & I love to detect,,what more can a girl ask for--besides another new detector
    In return I do a lot of things with my husband as well,like golfing,riding motorcycles,etc.having quality time with each other...
    HH
    Hopefully your wife will come around,,say a prayer for her it doesn't hurt,,,

    HAHA, that's too funny. My wife used to ask me if my "girlfriend" and I had a good time at the beach. After the first couple of rings she stopped asking me that.
    Time is nothing, timing is everything.
